Compare Investments By Property Type

Compare Investments By Property Type

Each type of real estate investment has pluses and minuses.  The most important question to determine which investment might be best for you is to review the circumstances and decide what type of investment would meet your needs and desires.

The categories are based on how likely there is to be a short-term issue with the price/earnings a property can produce, ability to remain liquid (be able to feel comfortable that an asset can be sold without having to wait,) how long it takes to sell, how often the investment has to be reviewed, how much it costs to invest and how easy it is to convert the asset to other uses.
